Title: Leaving the Chaos
Medium: Cut paper on Stretched Canvas
An original Cut Paper work on stretched canvas, by Rachel, using small pieces of up-cycled magazine paper from several sources, adhered to primed canvas with satin medium and varnished with gloss UVL varnish to prevent fading. Sides of canvas painted for modern display.
This intricate composition features several changes in perspective and complex detail throughout the evocative composition. Topics of nationalism, forced migration, immigration, naturalization, language, urban development, and expatriation are all connected in this piece.
